Finally found this thread.
After having my car for almost a year and a half and 61K kilometres on it, this happened to me for the first time last weekend, after travelling about an 800-kilometre drive.
I was not on an incline. I stopped for gas and then pulled over to the gas station store so's not to tie up the pumps, put it in 1st and shut it off. After picking up something the store, I got back in, put the clutch in, started it, and went shift from 1st to reverse, and NOTHING. I checked and the emergency was off. I turned it off and got out, told the friend I was travelling with that I had a problem. I got back in, turned it on, put the emergency on, then took it off, tried again, and no problem getting out of 1st.

One day it locked up again and he had it towed backed to the dealership. They took out the tranny and replaced it. Good luck.
It hasn't happened since but if it happens near home, I'll definitely have it towed. I'm due for an oil change so I'll mention it when I take it in. Guess if I have to have it towed, I'll have to get the SSE removed.
I do have the Hurst but would have thought if the Hurst was an issue it would have happened before then and certainly since.
